EECS network outage resolved as of approx 10:10AM.
Since last night and continuing today, we experienced a loss of connectivity outside of EECS. The reason for the outage was due to a combination of DOS attacks over ssh coupled with a setting on the department firewall that caused the sessions to build up over time and not time out. The ssh session time is now set to 2 hours. I regret the inconvenience this may have caused.
